Looking back at my calendar, I noticed that my last update was at the beginning of the week. This week has been a busy one but a good one too. My PT has been progressing well. I had sessions on Monday and Wednesday at the facility, then I had my routine that I do on my own as well. Yesterday was an unplanned off day but it worked out great because it made today one of my best days yet.
Smart training, smart rehab, smart everything will work together to accomplish many objectives. My primary objective during this entire knee rehab is to be able to do things that will keep me moving forward. Doing stupid things will not accomplish that goal. During my rehab I have been working hard with my therapist and communicating with her everything that I do outside of our sessions in order to have a complete and comprehensive program. It has been working. The key to everything that you do is simple: Train Smart!
Bike 20 minutes (I’m “itching” to let go on the bike but again, I’m also focusing on staying smart.)
Stretch and Foam Roller
Step Ups 3×15
Lateral Step Ups 3×15
Jungle Gym Hip Lifts w/ 10 sec hold 3×5
Jungle Gym Leg Curls 3×15
Heel Lifts 3×15
Then I finished with some upper body and a cool down on the bike. It was a good way to end a very productive week.
